Captain Jody Dotson of the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department reports the arrest of a Lynn woman for delivery of a controlled substance, Xanax.
LCSO deputies arrested Amanda Bean of Lynn after the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department received several calls of a woman going around Walnut Ridge trying to sell Xanax pills.
Deputies responded to the area the woman was reported to be in and made contact with her. Bean sold the undercover deputies 20 Xanax pills and threw in some muscle relaxers to “sweeten the deal”. The deputies then explained to Bean that they were undercover officers and placed her under arrest. Several other types of prescription drugs were found on Bean at the time of her arrest. Bean was transported to the Lawrence County Jail to await a bond hearing.
